You deserve to have once-in-a-lifetime keepsakes for a once-in-a lifetime birth.
I want to capture your unique birth story, however it unfolds. In the movement + haze of birth, photography and heirloom artwork help your story stand still so you can always recall those precious memories of new life.
Your momentous birth doesn’t deserve to be lost in the digital abyss.
What would it look like if...
✓ You had the ability to look back on your birth and feel empowerment like you’ve never felt before
✓ You and your partner become so intimately connected through your birth, and you had the portraits that captured your connection as a forever reminder of your transformation together
✓ You were able to look back on your journey to parenthood and newfound love for your baby in a tangible way, long after the freshness of that moment starts to fade
✓ You could show your own children what a beautiful experience birth is first-hand
we will hop on a call or meet in person for an in-depth “meet and greet” where we can make sure we are a great fit! Afterwards, I’ll email over a detailed questionnaire about your birth plans and wishes
you’ll contact me once you’re in labor and I’ll make my way over to you to capture allll the details, including golden hour!
around 4-6 weeks after your birth, we will meet up virtually or in person to go over your beautiful birth story and select the heirloom artwork you wish to have. SHP clients invest $1300+
VIEWING + ORDERING
you’ll get your artwork delivered finished + ready to adore in your home, reliving your transformative birth day for years to come.
birth is so unique — it’s a once-in-a-lifetime event that you’ll never get to relive. it tells a story of a mother’s journey to meeting someone she spent 9 months growing from cell to cell and limb to limb. birth photos are real, raw, and vulnerable which is what makes them so magical and profound. As mothers, we can so often forget all the little details surrounding our birth — this is where birth photography thrives! it captures the intimate details that piece together the entire story of your baby’s journey earthside. my own birth photos are something I cherish & will hold on to forever as they document the profound transformation and birth that took place for not only my baby… but me as a mother.

you are not going to want to miss this moment. let’s chat more about your birth!
"I had the pleasure of having Kayle as both my doula and birth photographer during my second birth, and I couldn't be more thankful for her presence at my birth. She helped me with positions to get baby moving down, she used the rebozo, massaged certain points to help with relaxation, and reminded me of my breath. Her calming presence and knowledge truly put me at ease! And the photos... my gosh! They captured my birth story perfectly. I don't know how she was a ninja and did it both, but she did! I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life. Don't hesitate.. Kayle is SO worth it!"
YES! We will have at least one in-person or virtual meeting prior to birth to get to know each other, go over your birth + artwork wishes, and cover any questions you might have!
I try my hardest to make early births if at all possible! 37 weeks just starts my "on-call" time where I limit travel more than a couple of hours away, have my phone on me 24/7, have 24/7 childcare reserved, etc. But if your birth happens prior to that, I do everything in my power to still be there!
Typically I strive to arrive in active labor. we will talk more about what that looks like and when to contact me! Communication is KEY. I will go over when and how to contact me when you think labor might be starting.
I stay for the actual birth, the golden hour afterward, and through baby's measurements/exam. typically 1-2 hours after birth!
I am with you every step of your birth journey, so long as I am permitted by hospital staff.
You will receive one digital sneak peek within 24 hours of birth. We will then meet around 4-6 weeks later to view your entire birth gallery and choose the keepsakes that best encapsulate your story!
